Dow Chemical Co. agreed Monday to acquire Essex Chemical Corp. for $367 million, rescuing it from the unwelcome advances of Switzerland's Gurit-Heberlein AG.

The stock market Arallied Monday, carrying through on a rebound that began last week at three-month lows. However, trading was so light that most analysts saw little substance in the advance.

Invariably, he wears a blue Oxford button-down shirt with a pen sticking out of the breast pocket. His manner is at first goofy, like TV detective Colombo's, yet even more disarming than that. Daughter Linda, 27, is the opposite: thin, tough, new wave, a black malachite stud in her right ear, two pearls in the left.
